Can't find my vault (using sync)

What I’m trying to do

I want to find my files so that I can use them directly without obsidian.

Things I have tried

I can’t find a folder with my obsidian files on my computer. There is no “Obsidian”->“vault name”. Is it because I’m using sync? I can’t find the path to the folder in settings either.

You should be able see the path of your vault(s) in the Obsidian vault switcher:

If it’s not there for some reason, I’d use search in File Explorer (Windows) or Finder (mac) and look for a collection of .md files or names of notes that you know are in your vault.

What sync service are you using? Obsidian vaults need to be local even if using any kind of sync, but it’s possible whatever you are using moved them to the cloud to be “helpful”.
